I have very gaunt looking cheeks and would like cheek implants. However, my main concern is that my body will reject the implant. Is this a possibility?
Your body will not reject the implants, but the implants can become infected on rare occasion and need to be removed. The larger problem with implants is symmetry between sides. Usually we prefer to utilize fat grafting to correct the gaunt appearance of a face. Fat grafting can be tailored to fill in many different areas and has a very long-lasting if not a permanent result.
